Sophia, who celebrated her 85th birthday on September 20th, went all out when it came to her outfit for the event.

Sophia described her designer buddy as "a friend, a master, a legend, a man who revolutionized the world of fashion through his elegance, passion, and style."

These two iconic people received a standing ovation from the room full of A-listers at Milan’s famed La Scala Opera house. Valentino also had impressive things to say about Sophia.

My biggest joy was when I found out that Mrs. Loren accepted to do me the honor of handing me the prize on this exceptional evening.

Sophia has shown her loyalty to the designer over the years and has worn the brand during some major moments in her life including the 1991 Academy Awards. But we have to say that this stunning black dress is high up there as one of her very best looks.

Fans couldn't help but compliment both Sophia and Valentino on their appearance.
